Re: Carnivore/keto

I'm sorry, I should have been more clear. I was eating pretty much all vegetables and meat. I have since cut back on the meat when I learned the dangers of saturated fat for E4's. I also eat some fruit but not much. I eat a ton of nuts. Mostly almonds. Legumes seem OK for me and I eat a lot of pint...

Re: Carnivore/keto

I buy it. I really like Rogan and Jordan Petterson. I compete in Jiu-jitsu, same as Rogan, and was having some weird joint and muscle pain . Popping advil like candy to go train. It was getting so bad that I was seriously considering giving up martial arts. Unrelated to that, I got my 23 and me res...

Re: Dr. Gabriel Lyon - Benefits of High Protein

Thanks for this. Since I don't know what to believe, I'm trying to have it both ways. Aiming at about 1.3 gm protein per kg of body weight but trying to make sure animal sources are < or = to half of that. I glance at the methionine total on cronometer when I do one of those nutrition reports (avera...

Re: Trying the protocol in advanced alzheimers

I have seen improvement in my mom in terms of her ability to process what we're doing--I explain and show her that we are going to go from the bed to the wheelchair and I can see that she slowly begins to understand, and will cooperate and try to stand up etc. I think I also see improvement in her ...

Re: Lost in the rabbit hole -- want a reality check.

I have a lot of the same issues, and more challenges and stress than I would wish to have. I walk around with a list of habits to adhere to during the day, and worry if I haven’t made time for brain games, exercise, dealing with sick family members, eating well, and work. And supplements! There are...

Re: Lost in the rabbit hole -- want a reality check.

Also no expert on much of this, but certainly an expert on the going-too-hard-and-hitting-the-wall routine. And the saying yes to work crap that not only doesn't serve me in the short term, but later comes back later to bite me in the keister. (For example, agreeing to do a project myself to avoid ...

Re: Lost in the rabbit hole -- want a reality check.

I'm very grateful for the company of such wise and generous people. I think I'm getting my equilibrium back. Good advice. Thanks for taking the time.

Re: Help with Numbers.

I agree with Tincup. Eggs are precious to me nutritionally and in cooking. Coconut oil, cheese, and cream I let go. I eat fish, shellfish, a little chicken but mostly in soups. I buy beef shank and a veal joint or two once or twice a month to make a really dense consommé. When I do that I get enough...

Re: Help with Numbers.

Hi, Chris. You're coming from a good starting place -- youngish and fit. (I'm pushing 63.) I have just one experience to share, and that is that my LDL particle number, which was close to yours, came WAY down when I got strict about saturated fat. Size went up. That doesn't work for everybody, but t...

Re: Lost in the rabbit hole -- want a reality check.

... something resonated in your post with me. I think with the work stress issue, it sounds quite overwhelming, especially if you have health issues going on, to face such a stressful time, and it's maybe not surprising you responded like that. I think it sounds like you are self aware and that is ...
